Virgin Atlantic Cargo today reported revenues for the 2012/13 financial year of £230 million and thanked customers around the world for their support, which ensured the airline performed well in a global market that showed decline.

After two years of record growth, Virgin Atlantic Cargo’s results in the last financial year were virtually on a par with its best-ever figures, reported in 2011/12. The airline carried 214,737 tonnes in 2012/13, -0.91% lower year-on-year. This compares favourably with the average overall industry decline of -4.5%.
